How is it that you can't play multiplayer with your friend on a game that focuses around 'community'? This seems like an absurdly HUGE oversight. I spent 30 minutes talking with an advisor last night getting all these instructions on how to join my friend, only for him to ultimately say that 'there is currently no way to play with your friends'. What in the world? Good job EA, it makes perfect sense that we would rather play with a bunch of complete strangers than play games together with our friends.

The current system is no good for playing with friends. I too spent 30 minutes to an hour just trying to play with one friend. I can't imagine the mess if say 4 or 5 buddies decided they wanted to play with me. At first it said that I wasnt online at the multiplayer screen on my friends Ps3, but I was on the batlelog. So when he couldnt jump in through the multiplayer screen, so he tried through battlelog. It told him my server was full...I knew it wasnt because we were in the same room watching all this happen. Eventually after entering and exciting servers over and over again I got in and my friend saw that I was in game at the multiplayer screen. So he joined, but of course since theres no lobby they just put him on the free spot, which was on the other team. So, after playing the game on opposite teams we were able to team up since someone left and the server wasnt full anymore. Now like I said what if that happened with 3 ore more players wanting to play with eachother.... It would takke a lot of tries and a lot of luck to make it so everyone got on the same team.
So yeah, they need some sore of lobby where you can join up with your friends and then have the game look for servers with that type of game you want to play with that many spaces free on the same team so that you all join. The option to change teams should still be there just incase you wanna mix it up, but being together should be default, or even make it an option in lobby to on if you and your friends will be on the same team.

This game sucks.
You have to **bleep**ing join the server before you invite a friend.
I regret buying this game, now Iam gonna buy COD: Ghosts and play that instead, this **bleep**ing sucks.
**bleep** you EA and **bleep** you DICE.
Battlefield 3 is alot better, I WANT MY MONEY BACK YOU SONS OF BITCHES

Say two friends are looking for a server with a minimum of two player slots free.
In BF4, if you find a server with only two free slots and you want to join, you either have to:
Now, can you imaginge if you want to play with more than one friend?!
In BF3, these frinends would alreday be in a "Squad" in the "Lobby" and when one of them joined a game, they'd all be joining more or less at the same time, reducing the "risk" of these ANNOYING problems to a minimum!
DICE, EA, PLEASE LISTEN: WE NEED A PRE-GAME LOBBY!

BTW, I am playing BF4 NOW, and issue number 2 just happened to me -_- My friend got in, and by the time I could press join all THREE extra slots were taken up -_-
Now I realise the server he joined automatically popped up on my screen, but still - a PRE-GAME LOBBY would be immensely preferable... This sucks.
